If the leaked chip specifications over at The Inquirer are accurate, we will be seeing AMD Vega GPUs moving into Intel's chip package. The tortuously named i7-8809G will have a TDP of 100W, a base clock of 3.1GHz and a Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics accelerator in addition to Intel's own HD 630. The chip has since disappeared from online listings but hints at what could be a very interesting reveal at CES this year; we will know more in just a few short days. NVIDIA has not yet made any comments about this reveal, which could have a significant impact on their lower end sales.
"Listed as an Intel Core i7-8809G, the quad-core eight-thread processor comes sporting both integrated Intel HD 630 graphics and packaged graphics acceleration in the form of the Radeon RX Vega M GH."
